Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

You appear to have a INSTALL and a README file listed, read those, they will tell you how to proceed to install this program.
But if this is some sort of defrag for Linux, I really find it not useful as the Linux filesystem rarely needs to be defragged as it won't get fragmented like a Windows Filesystem.. I truly believe your just wasting your time and space installing this program.
yes. other operating systems have defrag.
linux journalized file systems do not really
require defrag. but there are products out
there which can defrag linux partitions. try this app for instance. and this thread..
Originally posted by Calum and perhaps it is a version of defrag that runs in linux, but which acts on fat* filesystems, without you having to boot into some windows or other to do the defrag. is this the case?
I can't really see the point to this, if your not booting into windows then it's not fragging itself to death, and if you do boot windows then it has defrag already. This is like virus scanners for linux, they are designed to prop up anti-virus vendors buisness model and nothing else.
